Did you happen to check out the 1.9 liter titanium ? We have the 1.3 and 
the 1.9 and discovered we liked the 1.9 better for the Bakepacker. It
gives you more headroom and more on the sides. If you want to make some
killer biscuits try an OutBack Oven. Works great and with practice browns
pretty well.
We have been trying alot of different food for the trail and discovered
Betty Crocker potatoes (you know the ones that have different flavors like
three cheese or bacon and cheddar ) work great in an Outback oven or Bakepacker
, or you can prepare them stove top. Cleanup can be alittle tricky unless
you are like us in that Alison gets the plate and I eat out of the pot,
and trust me I can clean up a pan when hungry. Speaking of plates I have
to tell you about my brand new high tech plate. We were having dinner at
Bakers Square ( one of those places that specialize in pies and cakes in
addition to decent food) last night and I happened to notice their pie pans.
After looking at one I discovered it was very light, yet strong and it could
be used as a plate or a bowl. They had two kinds one thicker and stronger 
than the other. The manager said it depended on the pie as to which one they 
used. I discovered the French Silk pie just happened to use the pan I 
wanted. So let me say, the French Silk pie was great and we now have a new plate.
I would have to say this has been the most filling gear purchase I have
ever made, but hey , somebody had to eat that pie.
pie pan/plate weight 1.5 ozs
